'creole vegetable' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)
This is the entire clue.
(Other definitions for okra that I've seen before include "Tropical plant with edible pods" , "Pod eaten in soups, stews etc" , "Bhindi or lady's finger" , "Bhindi, gumbo or ladies' fingers" , "Long green tropical vegetable" .)
